President Obama tapes interview with Jimmy Fallon for NBC late-night talk show
President Barack Obama weighed in on the 2016 election on Jimmy Fallon’s show on Tuesday, discussing Bernie Sanders remaining in the race and Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president.

Obama Tells Jimmy Fallon Being President „Is A Serious Job. You Know, This is Not Reality TV.“ President Obama stopped by 30 Rock last night to tape a segment of The Tonight Show and weighed in on Election 2016: GOP Bizarro Edition. When Jimmy Fallon asked if he thought Republicans were happy with their choice of overly-caramelized crème brûlée Donald Trump, the President replied, „We are.“ He added, after laughing, „But I don’t know… I don’t know how they’re feeling. (CHEERS) So—actually, you know what—that was too easy. But the truth is actually I am worried about the Republican Party.“

From the White House press pool transcript:
„But democracy works. This country works when you have two parties that are serious and trying to solve problems. And they’ve got philosophical differences and they have fierce debates and they argue and they contest elections. But at the end of the day, what you want is a healthy two party system.“

„And you know, you want the Republican nominee to be somebody who could do the job if they win. And you want folks who understand the issues. And where you can sit across the table from ‚em and you have a principled argument. And ultimately can still move the country forward.“

„So I am actually not enjoying, and I haven’t been enjoying over the last seven years, watching some of the things that have happened in the Republican Party ‚cause there’s some good people in the Republican Party. There are wonderful Republicans out in the country who want what’s best for the country and may disagree with me on some things but are good, decent people.“

„But what’s happened in that party culminating in this current nomination, I think is not actually good for the country as a whole. It’s not something Democrats should wish for. And my hope is, is that maybe once you get through this cycle, there’s some corrective action and they get back to being a center right party. And Democratic Party being a center left party. And we start figurin‘ how to work together.“

„Also, to clear things up, Obama said, „The main role I’m gonna be playing in this process is to remind the American people that this is a serious job. You know, this is not reality TV.“

Barack Obama:
„Germany, China, India working to out-compete us“ 

PTI Apr 17, 2014, 08.26AM IST

WASHINGTON: Countries like Germany, China and India are working every day to out-educate kids so they can out-compete American businesses, the US President Barack Obama said adding that these nations are making more progress than the US.

„Countries like Germany, China and India – they’re working every day to out-educate our kids so they can out-compete our businesses. And each year, frankly, it shows that they’re making more progress than we are,“ Obama said yesterday.

Gestern musste in Johannesburg US-Präsident Barack Obama offenbar seinen Sitz mit Gattin Michelle tauschen. Erst saß er neben Dänemarks Premierministerin Helle Thorning-Schmidt. Doch seht selbst das, was auf Twitter Ahmed Kadry so kommentierte:

Obama may be the leader of the ‘free world’, but if your wife tells you to switch seats, you switch.

[Bevor die Dinge aber zu sehr ins kleinbürgerliche Kraut schießen: Vielleicht hat sich Michelle Obama ja auch nur einen Platz zur Seite gesetzt, damit Ehemann Barack nach seiner Rede nicht über sie hinweg klettern musste. Wer weiß…] [update: Hier mehr…]
